You Know Him Even Though You Think Not.
Alexandre de Betak, furniture and fashion designer,
has long been choreographing and producing
the Victoria Secret runway shows
The 44-year-old Alexandre and father of two told Trendland
that he spent 10 years turning his dream to live in a modern-day "cave" into a reality.
His amazing, one-of-a-kind domicile resides in the coastal village in the Tramuntana region
Albeit quite splendid, the peaceful allure of the pool area above doesn't look much like a cave, does it? No . . . but how about this:
Movie time with friends and family in this cozy yet cavernous space.
Loving all the billowy pillows. Smooth architectural lines and the arched ceiling create more of a cave-like setting, don't you think?
De Betak told Trendland that ancient dwellings inspired him to design and build a home that celebrated the land, its offerings and the unpredictable twists and turns you might find within a cave. No sharp corners or rigid separation walls allowed in this house. He and his family live in what he calls a rustic and eco-friendly construction.
He also was interviewed by the New York Times. To read that interview and see the photos they posted, go here.
Alexandre de Betak and his children . . .
perhaps jumping for joy that they get to spend time in such a cool place?
